Kawasaki brought new dirt bikes to India. The company has announced the launch of a new model of their KLX450R bike (2022) in the country. The off-ride bike is priced at Rs 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom). That means it is 50,000 rupees more expensive than the old model.
The 2022 Kawasaki KLX450R dirt bike comes with new lime green color scheme and fresh decals. It has been designed with the track in mind. As a result, like other bikes, it does not have taillights, turn indicators, rear-view mirrors.
The 2022 Kawasaki KLX450R bike has been adapted to its suspension setup so that it can be handled properly on rough, rocky roads. It has a suitable wire-spoke wheel for off-road driving. The bike will run on a 449 cc liquid cooled engine. The number of gears is five.
The engine of the 2022 Kawasaki KLX450R is housed in a lightweight aluminum perimeter frame. The bike has an upside down fork with long travel on the front and psychic suspension on the rear. Both wheels have disc brakes. The handlebars are made of aluminum. The Dart Bike also got a small digital console.
The 2022 Kawasaki KLX450R will be imported as a CBU unit like its predecessor, meaning it will be fully manufactured and set foot in India. Delivery will start from January 2022. Note that it is sold in very small numbers due to being a pure off-roader.
